lvmcache: Invalidate cached VG if PV is orphaned.

If a PV in an existing VG becomes orphaned (with 'pvcreate -ff', for
example) the VG struct cached against its vginfo must be invalidated.
This is because the struct device it references no longer contains
the PV label so becomes incorrect.

This triggers the error:
  Internal error: PV $dev unexpectedly not in cache.
when the PV from the cached VG metadata is subsequently looked up
in the cache.

Bug introduced in 2.02.87 by commit 7ad0d47c3c93053c07c45161dbdbc0798ac7e2f6
("Cache and share generated VG structs").

Before:

lvm> pvcreate -ff /dev/loop3

 Version 2.02.105 -
 =====================================
+  Invalidate cached VG struct after a PV in it gets orphaned. (2.02.87)
+  Mark pool format metadata as FMT_OBSOLETE.
   Use major:minor in lvm2-pvscan  service for proper global_filter application.
   Syntax and spelling fixes in some man pages.
   Dependency scan counts with snapshots and external origins.
